Till the early '70s (maybe even later), I think acetates were the common medium for short-term archiving within the music industry - kind of like CDRs now I suppose. Cassettes were unreliable and of variable quality, and not everyone had access to a reel-to-reel machine, so what do you do if you've ...

It's such a pleasure to be able to hear things like this.

VU tracks on NYC Man

I saw Lou's sleevenotes for his NYC Man compilation lately, complete with lenghty details about how fab (he thinks) all the tracks sound compared to the original releases. Just wondered whether anyone who has this release had noticed any significant difference in sound quality on the Velvet Undergro...

Moe's posts on the old yeller board

Hello, I'm just about to post a couple of questions that I posted on the old yellow board that I never got an answer to, so apologies for the repetition. First question: someone mentioned recently that when said yellow board first started, Moe herself posted a few messages. So, did anyone keep an of...
